He may just do that.

"Life is Worth Losing" his 13th live stand-up special might just give us all some insight on what Mr. Carlin
would think of all this.

What does this have to sdo with classic TV?
Carlin's HBO specials are some of the most classic of anything to ever be shown on the idiet box.
Classic does not mean old.

sometimes Robin, you need to step back, take a deep breath,and think about what you are writing. This was one of those times. You are indeed a pinnacle of information but at times, give yourself pause before you write.

I don' t like talking that way, but I think I agree with you, Blue Devil. Gloating at anyone's death is tacky at best, but especially someone who was as well-loved as George Carlin. You didn't like him, Robin? Fair enough. I know other people who didn't, either. But for heaven's sake, let those of us who did, grieve.

I thought they were both quoting him myself.

Another artist that I should have saw live, had the chance to but didn't go. He was like Lenny Bruce, a pioneer. The people who hate him probably watch HBO and saw his post freebase elderly routine and shrugged. I watched his later stuff and only chuckled out of respect of his past works which were brilliant to say the least. Some of the metaphors and symbolism he comes up with is truely philosophical artistry.

The people who don't get it obviously never heard "What the hell am I doing in NJ?"...

I have the CD and it's funny, even if you are not from NJ.

If you honestly listen to it with and open mind and don't find it a bit humorous there may be something wrong with you...

Some people don't get Phil Hendrie or Family Guy either, go figure. (I know someone who actually likes aqua teen hf but not family guy????). ATHF is slightly funny for about a month and then gets old, while FG is funny even after seeing the same episode 20 times (they play the same 12 episodes over and over for some dumb reason).

Hey guys, come on, now be easy on this Robin guy. He obviously hasn't taken his ritalin (or viagra for that matter) regularly. Nothing that some anti-psychotic medication and and a little ECT couldn't fix...I'd suggest car batteries connected to his nutsack with good strong battery clips.

BTW: Is there a mechanism to get someone booted off IA? (knowing of course that's it's easy to rejoin) We could also purge all Robin postings? They're as useful as a screen door on a submarine.

That's a little unfair. I've enjoyed much of what Robin's had to say. Enough so, in fact, to be disappointed by his words in this thread, rather than contemptuous.

(BTW, it IS "his," isn't it? Or is it "hers?" The name Robin can be either one, and if you've specified, I probably missed it.)

I thought George Carlin was rubbish his whole career, but to poke fun at his death is stupid and completely uncalled for. May the four winds blow him safely home.

I appreciated his stand-up best in small doses, but having seen the man in Kevin Smith's anomalous "Jersey Girl," I'm convinced he barely scratched the surface of his abilities. Whatever you thought of that movie in general (I know Smith fans were furious about it), Carlin played to absolute perfection.

To say 'Yay!! X is dead!' is the epitome of classless...I think the statement speaks for itself. And yes, I didn't even like George Carlin's comedy all that much but nobody deserves that. That's the problem with the internet - it breeds people who care nothing about what they say anymore because of the anonymity it affords. Yes, I made light of it, and I admit so; it's just infuriating to have people spout crap that way. Furthermore I have no idea what it has to do with classic tv. I don't think it refers to anything on the site directly or indirectly. Just more of some people's running stream of consciousness that nobody asked for and contributes nothing.

Where 'X' = anyone short of a pedophile, murderer, war criminal (etc...you get the idea)

PS: Let's keep it on topic people and I'll try to do the same...
